Development through Missions, CBFO
The little book of James has more punch to it than most of us can stand. Consider James 2:15-16:
“Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?”
Indeed! The CBFO is dedicated to the reality of missions. Let me tell you about some upcoming projects. His Nets, in partnership with the CBFO, has six volunteers who are represented in four CBF churches that will distribute treated bednets in Ghana from June 5-17. The team will give out 2,600 nets to pregnant women and families with children five and under. This effort will unquestionably save lives and spread the good news of Christ in a dramatic way.
A second project comes out of a partnership between CBF and Buckner. KidsHeart reached out to residents in one of the twenty poorest counties in the U.S. Volunteers will go to South Texas, near McAllen, and work on housing as well as providing many other services to people who do not have the means to effectively provide for their families. Again, Oklahoma CBF O churches are making a difference.
The rest of the story from our annual meeting – “the car” was delivered to a woman in Rossi Francis’ church. When Pastor Francis got to this woman’s house he asked her how she was doing. She said that she’d been complaining to the Lord about her need for a car. She had to take one of her children to school, and her car probably would not make the trip. When Rossi gave her the keys to her “new” car she literally fell on the floor weeping and thanking the Lord for answering her prayers.
It is truly satisfying to know that CBFO does something about needs of brothers and sisters who cannot do for themselves.
